Latest Electrical (EEE) Projects List for Electrical Engineering students

Vasanth Vidyakar

I have been working with a large number of colleges and students over the last 2 years to help them learn by building projects. Our team visited a number of colleges and trained more than 100,000 students all over India. Those students are now coming back to me (and my team members) and asking us for more projects to do. Here are some of the queries they have – what are the latest EEE projects to build? What are the trending technologies in electrical engineering? What are the latest technological skills that an EEE student should have to improve job prospects? etc.

I am assuming more of you will have similar queries. So here I am writing down the list of simple electrical projects and ideas which will help an Electrical Engineering Student to select and build good projects that will help him/her in the future.
